1986 Galoob Toy Fair Catalog

1986 Galoob Toy Fair Catalog

The 1986 Galoob Toy Fair Catalog helped promote their upcoming line-up of toys for the year. Galoob created many memorable toys during its manufacturing period from 1958 through 1998. This was especially true during the 1980s, when Galoob introduced toy lines like The Infaceables, Blackstar, Defenders of the Earth, and many more.

To advertise their upcoming line-up of toys for the upcoming months, Galoob representatives traveled to toy fairs and other trade events. As they promoted their new toys, they distributed catalogs to dealers, retailers, and other vendors. The pages of these catalogs presented promotional images of their toys along with ordering information.

Toy fair catalogs like this one provided first glances at upcoming toys, making them highly collectible. Many fans easily spot the differences between the prototypes photographed in these pages and the toys we know today. So, each catalog is a valuable time capsule of the past toy industry.

Wheeljack’s Lab proudly presents high-definition scans of the 1986 Galoob Toy Fair Catalog featuring Defenders of the Earth and more.

About Our Galoob Catalog Scans

To promote their upcoming slate of products, Galoob handed out catalogs to attendees of toy fairs and other events. Each catalog was filled with information about their newest toys, even ones still in development. Thus, they often provided the first looks at action figures, playsets, vehicles, and more from their lines. Thus, they have become valuable and rare collector’s items.

These Galoob Toy Fair Catalogs featured toys from their beloved lines. For instance, the company took players to fantasy worlds with lines like the Infaceables and Blackstar. Then, the Defenders of the Earth featured Flash Gordon and other heroes ready to save the day. Other players could create adventures in space with the Adventures of Galaxy Rangers and Star Trek: The Next Generation toy lines. Galoob’s toys also delivered a smack-down with their WCW World Championship Wrestling line-up. The company also created a line-up of mutant aliens, the Biker Mice from Mars.

Galoob used in-production prototypes in their images, as these catalogs were prepared before the lines were released. This meant that the featured toys often differed from the retail releases. Moreover, toys sometimes appeared only on these catalog pages, as they were canceled or never hit retail store shelves.

While Galoob only handed these booklets out to trade professionals, we have now made them available to all. You can explore the toys featured in these catalogs with our Galoob Toy Fair Catalog Scans. This is a rare treat since catalogs like these have become increasingly difficult to locate with each passing year.
